Plug PM in with any of the AFC West teams and they would be a playoff team. Luck has the potential....these others guys have already shown who they are.
They have the POTENTIAL to be great, they aren't great now. Take Wayne away from Luck and he looks like Blaine Gabbert. Take Jackson from Freeman and he looks like the QB that people weren't sute he could be a franchise guy.
Potential is a funny thing. Quinn, Russell, Akili, Harrington, Carr are all guys who had potential but for whatever reason flamed out. Now I'm not saying that Luck, RGIII, and Freeman will go that way, but it is still to soon to put them ahead of a guy like Schaub or Flacco that have won games and played more than half a season.
